‘Co-Working Space’ – this is a new word for many and very common among startups and freelancers in tech community. The word is gaining popularity slowly because it is still not much known to sluggish IT industry in Tier II, III cities and towns in India. However, this is very popular among young entrepreneurs and enthusiasts who love to socialize and share ideas and thinking of bootstrapping startups.
This is basically a place where many people from different technical / non-technical backgrounds share office space or a large space on rental basis, that depends on the facilities provided and need of those co-workers. These can be freelancers, writers, bloggers, small startups, etc. The concept is very interesting in which where you can not individually afford office space for yourself because of lots of technical issues like high rent, agreements, separate Internet connection, furniture and all, you can have all these for small amount of rent to be paid to manager of working space, same like students to libraries.
